The Bunkers of Albania

Albanian bunkers, Michel Gondry's novel cars, state-shaped skillets and more in our look at the web this week

Between 1967 to 1986 the Albanian government constructed 750,000 concrete bunkers in preparation for an enemy that never came. Located in neighborhoods, beaches, cemeteries and on mountaintops, the bunkers were never used. Now two graduate students want to convert them into hostels, cafes, and other symbols of openness and hospitality.
